I started self harming, when I began remembering the abuse.
So, sorry you've been through so much pain.
Sending you hugs.

Can’t go through with suicide so self harm instead
Same here, I just feel so depressed, I'm getting abused on a daily basis by my brother, I'm crying daily, I don't have enough money for things, this pandemic is making job searching worse, I have been getting rejections. I tried contacting my former job, seems they don't want me.

@Lightanddark Have you tried drawing on yourself with a washable red marker or red lip pencil? I do that instead of the actual self harm.

Find out why you want to commit suicide and then combat what the issue is. Do not settle with it, but fight back.
